Germany 

Willkommen! Germany has long been called the land of Dichter und Denker – poets and thinkers. However, contemporary Germany is also the land for travelers and explorers seeking multicultural and dynamic cities, bucolic villages, and pristine nature. Ride a bike along an old airport tarmac in Berlin, travel by solar-powered ferry across an Alpine lake, watch the wind turbines and half-timbered houses whiz by through the window of a high-speed train as part of your German adventure. Get an up-close view of Germany that goes beyond Sauerkraut and Bratwurst.

Custom programs in Germany are ideal not just for German language teachers but also educators in history, STEM, government/civics, and the fine arts.

Today we fly to Munich, Germany!

Lodging: Airplane

Today we arrive in Munich! After we get settled in our hostel and taking some time to rest after the long haul across the ocean, we will walk up the tower of the Church of St. Peter to get a great view of the city center. For dinner we will sample some traditional, and delicious, Bavarian food.

Lodging: Munich Hostel

The best way to explore a new city is by bicycle and we will begin in Munich with a bike tour that includes all of the major historical sites in the city center. We can stop at the beautiful Viktualien Market to enjoy lunch from local vendors and look around inside some of Munich's oldest churches and breweries (like the famous Hofbräuhaus). Tonight we'll try another important German cuisine for dinner, Turkish street food in one of the city's most diverse neighborhoods.

Lodging: Munich Hostel

We will bear witness to the Holocaust today at the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site just outside of Munich. We will return for a peaceful dinner and stroll through the English Garden in Munich at the end of an important day.

Lodging: Munich Hostel

For our morning in Munich we have the option of visiting the European Commission office or the Bavarian state government (Landtag). After a short hour-long train ride we will arrive in the historical city of Nuremberg that was once a trading mecca in the Holy Roman Empire as well as a center for political rallies during the Third Reich. After dropping off our things at the medieval Imperial Castle where we will be sleeping, we will explore the ancient half-timbered houses and churches in the city center. We will also get a chance to try the local specialty - Nuremberg Bratwurst. Oh, and did we mention we were staying in a castle?!

Lodging: Nuremberg Castle

Today we will have an in-depth exploration of Nuremberg's connection to the Third Reich at the Documentation Center on former Nazi Party rally grounds. Afterwards we will have time together to decompress and process what are sure to be emotional impressions as we settle in for a relaxed dinner.

Lodging: Nuremberg Castle

In the morning we will explore the home of one of Nuremberg's most heralded sons - Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer

Then we will board the train for a stunning ride into the foothills of the Alps, arriving in the town of Fãssen in time for dinner.

Lodging: Fãssen Hostel

Bavarian King Ludwig II created a fairytale world in his 19th-century palace, Neuschwanstein. We will visit this stunning building today and have some time to explore the surroundings. Later in the day we can have some free time in town or learn more about this beautiful natural environment of this region at the Forest Experience Center.

Lodging: Fãssen Hostel

We are so close to Austria, so let's go! We'll take a quick train across the border to go see an amazing complex of medieval fortress ruins at Burgenwelt Ehrenberg and we walk across one of the world's longest pedestrian suspension bridges. Have your cameras at the ready!

Lodging: Fãssen Hostel

After a short morning train ride back to Munich we will tour the exciting BMW Welt, which can include the plant or the museum. The evening is ours to enjoy a farewell dinner.

Lodging: Munich Hostel

After breakfast we'll board a plane back across the Atlantic. Auf Wiedersehen!

Lodging: Your own bed, eventually!
